This is just a guess, but Mr Weir could have felt rushed and backed into a corner. No one likes that. It often makes people feel like they have to come out swinging or play defense.

If this had played out where people could have evolved an opinion over a space of weeks, I think we might have given more folks room to learn and come to a consensus rather than taking sides. But there were public accusations and alot of drama.

If this theory is right, then lets give all involved that space now.

Learn and forgive. It is worth it in the long haul. This band and this tradition are too important.

My 2 cents.

Learn and Forgive I agree

But how long do you think he really to think about this- a couple of weeks or a couple of years?

All we have to come from on that is his statement, and phil's for that matter: it sounds like it came down pretty fast.

For those of us in the tape trading world this has been central for a long time, but I am guessing that these guys would much rather think about making music :)

I think in a year's time we will all get a better perspective on this whole kerfuffle, its impact, and people's considered opinions.

I would love this to die down and let that learning process take place.

i hear you my brother. lets take a deep breath and realize that Bobby is not the Grateful Dead. The GRATEFUL Dead are everyone that has played in the band and all who have attended. dont let one 4 minute rant change what the whole thing has been about.
WHEN YOU GET CONFUSED LISTEN TO THE MUSIC PLAY

PEACE MY FRIENDS

Amen. Remember...sometimes the light is exactly where you don't expect it...in the strangest of places...but you have to "look at it right!"
